    I cannot believe sometimes how time consuming it is to do some jobs...
    After 2 days of work with help from my father we finally managed to install the nice wood stuff from the front facade...

    With some help from my father and uncle we made some progress.
    I would have posted more pics but I don't know how to make the pictures from the phone 1 MB or smaller.
    Maybe some wizard can share some knowledge...

    Thanks for the support!
    It's raining a lot these days. After the rain stops I will start working on the water insulation so I can finally put earth on the house and on its facade.

    Since the weather is so bad and I cannot work on the house I decided to plant all my plants.
    I planted tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. I have saved tomatoes seeds from last year from tomatoes that tasted the best.
    But the garden is so big that I must also buy some other plants from the market to fill all the empty space. I will also plant some watermelons, some beans, carrots and all sort of vegetables and whatnot.

    Unfortunately, not much is happening here. Rain is screwing me constantly, I need to have at least 7 days of sunny days without rain so i can make the water insulation. No chance. At least in the next 10 days the weather forecast is the same, rain rain rain every day.
    Today was an OK day for a grill with my friends. But rain is just around the corner.

    Rain is still present like somehow I've moved to London.
    Anyway, finally I finished some thick oak wood and I made my bed out of it. This is the view I have from my sleeping position, I can see the church fortress.
    Still lots of things to do inside but one step of a time. I hope in this lifetime I will have the funds to furnish the house inside exactly like Bag End. Until then this will be more than ok for me.

    Would you be willing to share your architectural plans? I'd love to study them and possibly build something similar here in the US!

    Unfortunately it's still raining here daily so I decided to switch to plan B regarding the waterproofing.
    Also in the mean time I am taking care of my garden, the tomatoes should have been taken care of (removing leafs and other branches, don't know the English word) a long time ago. I didn't do it because I thought they still need time before this operation. I removed now like 80% of their leafs and branches, they started growing to nasty. But hey, better late than never.
    Also the kale cabbage, it's the first time I've grown it, I've heard it's super healthy, can't wait to taste it in a fresh summer veggie salad.
